I can say that we aspire to use last years area, however In not taking part in negotiations with land owners and Sollefteå kommun.

you mean where a 6mm bb is bombarded on an 8mm bb, causing it to splice and creating a corn starch shockwave?

Okay, I don't know whether it's appropriate, but I have a question to the Swedes here.
I managed to convince the wife to go to the game with me (if we get holidays at the right time, that is) at the price of bringing her to an extra comfortable place after a couple nights in the woods.
So, we thought about renting this house for holidays in Sweden after the game. Since we've found other people (mostly family) to go with us, it brings back the price to acceptable levels; is such a price normal, or is it below/above the average prices you'd get for this in Sweden?

Apart from that, is it possible to bring AEGs by plane these days? Especially realistic, full steel ones (NPO AEG AS Val and STO Vintorez). Which companies will accept that, and under which conditions?

Thanks!

How many are you?

But for the level of comfort you are looking at, then i would say the price is reasonable for a week.

AEGs on planes are ok. Its sporting goods without license. Only issue could be if you fly via Germany. What is your planned flight path?

Even though these are toys and such, all the airlines handle these as they were real, and they should.

At least Norwegian is fine travelling with guns/airsoft guns. There are some companies that doesn't permit these at all.

1. Buy a ticket online, from the special luggage you can choose "guns", do this. Pay what it asks you to pay, for Norwegian it was around 20e to one direction
2. Gun must be in hard lockable crate. Lock the crate. You can put as many guns as you can fit to the same crate. I had 2 when travelling to Prague.
3. BB's I put to same crate, since these are really not ammunition, just BB's. You shouldn't call these ammunition. There is no law restricting you travelling with bags of biodegradable balls. Real ammunition can't be put to same crate as the gun!
4. NO LIPOS IN TO THE GUN CRATE! These must be carried in hand luggage, put in a plastic bag, tape all the electrical leads shut.
5. Check-in in the airport, go to special baggage drop to drop the crate.
6. Pick up the crate from special baggage drop at destination. Police or similar authority might want to check the crate.
7. If someone asks you the papers for the gun, explain that it's airsoft/soft air and doesn't require any papers.

Do same thing vice versa when going back home.

This is how it went for me when travelling from Helsinki - Prague - Helsinki, using Norwegian.

You can of course call the flight operator and ask from them how are they handling these.

The advice above is excellent.

I would just add:

1. You can put BBs into your normal hold baggage if you don't have room in the gun case. Remember that Berget requires Bio BBs, so you might prefer to buy them when you arrive. You're going to have to buy gas when you arrive anyway. Don't put BBs into cabin baggage - they look like organic matter on the X-Ray machine and the security people will put them in the trash.

2. Forget about Ryanair (FR), EasyJet, Blue and Wizz etc. Most of the low-cost airlines won't take "sporting equipment". They don't want to pay people to do the paperwork :/ Norwegian seems to be an exception, kudos to them.

3. There is a small chance that you *might* be told to put only one gun into the case. This is a rule on some airlines, not all. It is not an ICAO requirement. Usually the checkin agent doesn't know about this rule, or you can talk them out of it.

4. If you are bringing GBB or GBBR magazines, bring a valve key too. You might be asked to remove the valves. Again, this does not happen often. But a key is cheap.

5. Remember to use the word "replica" a lot ;)

Good luck & safe flights.
Nice, yes. Weak, no.

Are we allowed to use products from airsoft pyrotechnics, e.g. grenade launchers and grenades?

I have read the rules, but as the posts before, building a "nuke" was allowed
